Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

Can we - somehow - rearrange the order of the operating systems on the boot menu? e.g i want first my libreelec , then my Raspbian and lastly my Recalbox ΟS

Now (if i remember correctly) Recalbox appears 1st, Raspbian 2nd and LE 3rd..

Added support for Pimoroni's Hyperpixel4

After installing PINN to the SD card, simply download and unzip hyperpixel4-display.zip from the sourceforge website and copy the contents over the top of PINN. The rainbow square will not show up on the Hyperpixel, because the display is not initialised until just before PINN starts. Only the display works at the moment - no touchscreen. I hope to add that in the future.

If you have some project spaces, you can add more OSes to your current configuration.

This has been suggested before.
(See https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 5#p1364021 above & surrounding posts)
Currently it is not possible within PINN but it is on my roadmap. For now, I can only suggest to manually modify the description field of /settings/installed_os.json for the OSes with the same name. Modifying the name may cause many things to break.

I think PINN (which is a mix of berryboot - noobs - matt huisman's addon and Steve Smith's project) is almost perfect.
What Steve Smith's project?

1) Before PINN i used steve's QUAD boot images (this is a link of his youtube videos if y want to check: https://www.youtube.com/user/funkmeister18/videos). He also had a page (http://multiboot.com/) but his link is down for some time now. Fortunately i still have an old 3ple boot image of him somewhere..

2) I was looking for a cool wallpaper to embedd it to PINN. I think i found it here:

http://getwallpapers.com/collection/raz ... .pinterest

I use that as my main background (private use of course). There are thousands of cool wallpapers there.

Dont know if those wallpapers are freely usable (i guess yes) but y may contact them? (there is a contact button at the end of the site)

None of them are stable enough though. GPU acceleration wont work (and will never work i guess) as the whole project is unofficial.On the other hand all of them are rooted too smth which is a minus for me (maybe lineage is not but i will have to test it..)

They say Emteria OS has the best potential (i have already tested it and it is the best among the rest) but .......it is rooted too :cry: :cry: I m too trying to find a "stable" un-rooted android image..

I am preparing the Emteria OS version for PINN next. It is the follow-on from RTAndroid.
Most (all?) Android versions for the RPi are either commercial, trial versions or unofficial.
I offer some in PINN by request to show what is available for users to try out, although some features are not well suited to the PINN environment (e.g. scripts to add applications, or to enter recovery mode) and may need tweaking by expert users to work properly.
If anyone finds a better version, I can always add them.

I have tried Emteria, its good, bu unfortunately no updates with free version. Im guessing you will add a new emteria version everytime it comes out? I usually just reinstall emteria every 3-4 updates that are released. But gotta wipe the SD card. With PINN i could just reinstall it with a simple click (that is if you add an image for every release).

Im gonna try out lineage and see how it works out. I will be doing this on a SD card not my PINN HDD.

DarkPlatinum if you try lineage plz tell us if it is rooted or not (this is basic for me), and some general thoughts about its performance (speed, crashes etc). I dont have a spare 8 GB sd card to try it right now..

You can try that file here: https://konstakang.com/devices/rpi3/CM14.1/

As you see on the FAQ section:

Q: I have no root, why? What is that hashtag on my status bar?
A: You need enable root access under Settings -> Developer options -> Root access. Root management is now integrated as part of LineageOS’ Privacy Guard and you can manage per app permissions under Settings -> Developer options -> Manage root access. You’ll have a persistent notification in the status bar when you’re running an app that uses root permissions.

That means that there is no root access. So the software comes unrooted. The problem is that it may be true, it may be not. Many android softwares have root residuals so there are a lot of ways to check it (I think lineage doesnt come with Play Store pre-installed so y will need to sideload the app (or download them, put them in a usb and install them)

1) Download an app called root checker (by Andrea Cioccarelli). Check what it says about root of your device. You can check CPU-Z (by CPUID) app too (Go to SOC->System->root access) or Device Info Pro (by 9x Works) to double/triple check. Go to next step (it may not work):

2) Download Es File Explorer app and check if there is a root folder in / and (or) a su app in /system/ and (or) /system/xbin/su file. If there is one of them the system is rooted.

New OS

Added emteria.OS - a version of Android that is a successor to RTAndroid

Hmmm - I thought I had this sorted, but it's not quite ready yet.

I downloaded the version 15 as that one works with RPi 3B+. I coudn't to get it to work. This is because I used etcher. In the instructions it gives a link by command line, ill try that instead. If it don't work, im not gonna try again.

Cannot get the LineageOS to work with my RPi 3b+. I used etcher and the method provided in the link in the instructions. All i get is a rainbow screen, then it dissapears and all there is a overscan line on the left, and some rgb pixels on at the bottom right.

Procount btw is it possible to download emteria onto my project space somehow? Whenever i try replacing it, it says project space is not the same number as partitions as emteria. I wouldn't want to reinstall all existing OSes as i have some data on them.

Did y use Win32DiskImager instead? On the comments in that video here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTCSCj9KBzY&t=438s) it says that "This only works for the pi 3 B, not the B+ (B plus) there's a difference between pi 3, and pi 3 B+, don't advertise it working for the B+ unless you have a working method, at the moment simply flashing the image does nothing."

ProjectSpaces are for common linux OS layouts with 2 partitions. Android normally has 3 partitions.
You would have to do some manual repartitioning to get it to fit. Better to backup and start again unless you know what you're doing.
